[1: 2,026 of 10,000] 229 Hours, 56 Sessions, 3 Months

In Drawing on November 26, 2020 at 10:11 AM

I am following a French artist, Thierry Duval, in Instagram and witness several posts about the city of Krems an der Donau done in watercolor come to life in a sunset setting.

It took him 229 hours, 56 sessions, and 3 months to show up with his skills to complete a project that inspiring the woman in me who was just watching in awe and grateful to the magic of creativity.

I am fascinated with watercolor, I’ve attempted that art form but never been producing the works that I imagine I could do. Anything that I want to be good at takes time, takes discipline to keep doing it, takes courage to be not afraid of people’s personal opinion, and the most important is I do it because it simply gives me pure pleasure.

I must learn discipline once again. When I was a child, I am more inclined to do it because I have the energy and I have the young will of everything is possible (or was it scary that if I don’t do this I get punished and there’s that too).

Now that I am all grown up, everything that I do has to have a purpose and I am slipping to find the proper reasons sometimes and justify the wrong. It needs to change if I want to live a healthy, joyful, rich, and love-filled life.

My daily rituals must be –

  1. Daily RitualWork must stay at the office and home is when I rest again.
  2. Set a time to go to be early to wake up early.
  3. Exercise to breathe better, have the energy to do more with enthusiasm, and so that I am no longer required to take medicine and a frequent visit with the doctor.
  4. Do something that light up my soul with delight from posting blogs, listening to various great music, reading books, write the next book, and start a business.
  5. Pray to seek connection with God and have the ample rest of my whole being, the confidence to move forward despite being scared, and to have the proper wisdom.


[1: 1,712 of 10,000] Effort Is Invisible Until It Isn’t

We’re so lucky to being forced to sleep; try to fight it and it will not work. Whoever said sleep is overrated is lying, we need it, and we just fall into it defensely when we’ve ran away from it long enough. We need reenergising.

Our choice now will reveal its result in the future whether to better us or worsen us. Constant excessive consumption of unhealthy foods without even exercising leads to becoming fat. Reading one book at a time will accumulate to learning and expanding the minds. Our tiny daily actions is a deposit of the earnings we get in the future. So we have to watch out on where we lead our life.



[1: 1,692 of 10,000] Sleeping on Sofa

I have a guilty confession, I have a bad habit of sleeping on our sofa. The worst streak is 3 nights in a row or were there even a 4, oh my I got to stop!


The sofa photo above looked a lot like my sofa right now (#Ikea) and it’s not lenghty so I usually curl up and in all fairness when I put my back at the corner, it felt like I am being hugged by a bear; and it felt nice and almost comforting until my feet hurts for curling for too long.

Why is it so bad to sleep on the sofa? I know exactly that I do that when I got too tired working the whole day, I am worried of all the things that I still need to do, but most of all it’s a reflection that I am all over the place and I am acting out like a homeless in the street. I have my proper bed, proper comfy pillow and blanket and what do I do, I retreat to the sofa, restless, and it got me worried that I forget how to be on my bed.

Sofa has always a different pull of me. It’s terrifying. It’s like I am not all grown up that I could not discipline myself. Well, so far, I seemed to be on tracked and been on my bed for 2 nights! No more breaking. I laugh at myself whenever I gets defeated on this weakness, it’s a loud cry of I need help, and yet I have no one to reach, I simply need to build up the right habit and for the love of myself, do what I need to do.

[1: 1,169 of 10,000] Why Things Needs To Be Put Away

I freaking wasted several minutes finding things because I was not organized enough with my files.

I freaking wasted several minutes finding things because I was not organized enough with my files.

I shouldn’t let things pile up because I am too busy to put it on its proper place. I got to admit that it’s a clear sign of procrastination, lack of discipline, rushing without efficiency, and at the end it will bite back my ass.

Getting organized is about making a proper place for everything. Doing it right the first time saves time and energy in the long run. It makes sense to quickly decide and let things be passed on otherwise it keeps building.

In a fast paced environment, and in a world where decisions lies entirely so much on my hand, then I got to be smarter to delegate fast, decide faster, and trust to make things all right. My biggest insatiable guilty pleasure is to make things pretty but could eat up so much time; that’s why I end up sacrificing so much of my personal time just to compensate for a longer time required. Argh! Ergh! I shall learn better but I hope faster.
